new icon journal [11 Jul 2005|12:28pm]

parisianpierrot
Just in case there's anyone still hanging around here that hasn't picked up the news yet, I have moved over to theoldvicarage - all my icons and other graphics will be posted there from now on. It's a friends only journal however so you will need to comment on the first post on there to be added. Thank you! xxx

Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes [14 Jun 2005|09:29pm]

[ mood | nervous ]

I guess this may seem like it's coming entirely out of the blue although it's not. I've been toying with the idea for a few weeks and I decided yesterday to take the plunge. But I fell asleep because that's what I seem to do a lot. Anyway, here's the plan - I'm going to merge starleticons_ and _sentimentality with my personal journal so that everything is in the same place. All you'll need to do is add me there, simple. I will keep my personal entries friends only so you won't get them on your friends list unless I friend you back which I won't do unless you ask me to. All graphics posts will be public so they'll appear on the friends list of everyone who has added me whether I've added them back or not.

I know it may seem like a nuisance to be doing this but I really need to. I have so much clutter and I just need everything kept in one place. It will make everything a whole lot simpler and, where I am at the moment, I just need everything to be nice and simple. I hope this doesn't cause any inconveniences. Oh, and if my affiliates could kindly link to parisianpierrot from now on, I'd be very happy. It doesn't really matter of course as this post will be up from here on in so people directed here will move straight there, but it will be appreciated.

The icons will stay up here of course. They'll be just.. here. For people to look at =) And I will be adding the rest of the icon requests to the comments on the previous post. But everything else will be posted at parisianpierrot from now on.

Requests [13 Jun 2005|12:57am]

parisianpierrot
I'm quite bored, wanting to make icons but I'm bored with all my pictures. So I have decided to open up another requests post! If you want me to accept your request, you have to follow the rules. Hee, I am strict. Sort of.

Your request must include:

- the URL of the picture you want. No actual images, just the URL.

- any text you wish to use. Please don't have any sequences that are too long, it makes my brain hurt. I'm useless with text.

- any specifics. Particular style I've used in the past? Particular colours? brushes? anything?


I'd rather not make icons with anything that may be seen as offensive on or anything. I just don't feel comfortable with it. I suppose you can say I have the right to turn anything down. Which I do.

ETA: No new requests please! I've suddenly found myself quite busy and with little muse. This always happens at the most inopportune moments.

Ava Gardner, Elizabeth Taylor & Hedy Lamarr [09 Jun 2005|01:42am]

[ mood | tired ]

Set number two. I lost my icon muse eventually which is why I am posting them now rather than making another Hedy icon and posting them later. Not entirely sure which set is coming next but I promise it'll be nice. Although perhaps not over the next few days, I'm quite exhausted when it comes to icons.

Rules: If you're taking icons, you must comment and credit. Comments are nice anyway. Don't hotlink, please. And don't customise anything.

Carole Lombard, Marlene Dietrich and Jean Harlow [07 Jun 2005|04:32pm]

parisianpierrot
I want to do a series of icons featuring lots of different classic actresses, some of which I've never iconed before. First lot: Carole Lombard, Marlene Dietrich and Jean Harlow, three lovely ladies of the 1930s. If anyone has any specific suggestions for future posts, let me know. I have ideas for two sets but I'm open to more.

Rules: Remember to credit and comment if you take anything, don't hotlink or customise a thing. Thanks!

Marilyn Monroe [01 Jun 2005|10:48pm]

parisianpierrot
So here it is at last! My big Marilyn post. I've been working on them this afternoon (although not that much, I've been looking after my seven year old nephew which makes work hard) and of course for the last fortnight or so and they're finally ready for Marilyn's birthday which is today - 79 year since she was born back in 1926. Yey. The styles in here are SO mixed. I personally like the ones I made today best. The last few. So yes. I hope you enjoy them. Oh and there are... 46 I think.

Remember to credit and comment, don't hotlink AT ALL and don't customise. Thanks!

[ mood | tired ]

Well well well, I've been making my Marilyn icons ever since I posted the Audrey batch so I decided to have a day off. What do I do? I make icons of course ;) But this time they're of Gigi which is sort of my happy movie, the film I watch when I'm down. It's just such a lovely, charming film and the costumes and sets are gorgeous (designed by Cecil Beaton whom I adore). Anyway, these are pretty simple because my creative energy is missing (actually, I haven't had any for a few weeks, my Marilyn icons stink) but I'm sure you'll cope. There are one or two that I quite like and might even use at some point in the future. How shocking.

Usual rules apply: You must comment and credit if you take anything and comments even if you don't are very much appreciate. Please please please please please don't hotlink (I need to get all those old posts sorted out, I haven't had the energy lately) and don't customise a thing.

My Photobucket's bandwidth has just exceeded. Literally just now. So my icons are going to be down until I can get them a new home which may take a while.

But the main thing I want to say is this - it looks like they're down due to hotlinkers. Comparing the stats and all that. My account is relatively new, it was only created at the beginning of March, and I used other accounts for a lot longer than this without the bandwidth exceeding. Almost all of my non-icon pictures are uploaded onto other servers because I want to save the bandwidth and whatnot. So I really can't see how it can be possible for it to be any other way. The amount of hits I've received are phenomenal.

So yes, I just want to remind everyone not to hotlink ever. Not from me, not from anyone else. I'm glad that I'm not paying for this bandwidth or I'd be losing money. Everyone who does is spoiling it for other people. People can't see my icons and the hotlinkers obviously can't as well. So yes, I'm pretty annoyed.

Audrey Hepburn [16 May 2005|09:11pm]

parisianpierrot
Felt like making some Audrey icons, so why not? I've become more of a fan of hers than I had been before whilst making these - I went on many picture searches and stopped by some websites that I'd never been to and found out some new things! So... I don't know what that proves really, but here we go. I've really been overusing techniques, styles, brushes, fonts and textures on these, but then when don't I? Also, this is my biggest set in ages. Inspired by Saturday Night Fry which is weird as I don't think these bear any resemblance to that radio show, but... I can't make icons without listening to it at the moment =/

Grace Kelly [15 May 2005|03:26am]

parisianpierrot
I told you all I'd be back with a Grace set! I never lie ;) I changed styles two icons in, hahah. Very happy with some of them, not so happy with others. It's also a very colourful set! I love colours. Not sure why her hair is so pink in some of them though =/ These icons were brought into the world with the help of Saturday Night Fry and diet cola with lemon.

Gene Tierney & The Blondie Set That Never Was [13 May 2005|04:32pm]

parisianpierrot
[ mood | creative ]

I started making a Blondie set. Ended up deleting the majority of them because they weren't very pretty and didn't think anyone would want them ;) All that remains are three Debbie Harry icons, but there you have it. I shall post them anyway in case there are Blondie fans out there! And some Gene Tierney because I haven't made icons of her for about 8 months which is a long time. Yeah. And that was only two icons! And they weren't much good. So ten icons of her =D Yey!

Natalie Wood icons! I've been meaning to make more Natalie icons for aaages, and I know how much certain people love her, so I thought I may as well give it a go. I'm quite chuffed with the results actually ;)

David Tennant, Madeleine Carroll & The 39 Steps [04 May 2005|11:35pm]

parisianpierrot
First off, I just want to say that this batch was painful. I always have to post even numbers (if I can help it). I got stuck at 19 and really couldn't make another icon to save my life. I was considering posting it at 19 when I just made another icon, just now. Bizarre. Secondly, I know that these won't be my most popular set ever, specifically the David Tennant side. Almost everyone who has friended this community has done so for the classic movie stars, and what's some British TV & stage (and technically film) actor who no one has heard of doing in my icons? Well, he's a great actor, starred in my favourite drama so far this year (the absolutely incredible Casanova which is one of the reasons why I love the BBC so much right now) and is rather good looking. And he's going to the next Doctor Who! Everyone should go and... I don't know. Download something he's in. Now. Thank you! OH! And he's going to be in the next Harry Potter film. In other words, he's going to be EVERYWHERE.

- Do not customise anything. This includes ANIMATING these icons. I'm fed up with people animating my icons.

Joan Crawford and Clara Bow [27 Apr 2005|07:08pm]

parisianpierrot
You know, I was going to post these on Monday night but I fell asleep. Woke up on Tuesday morning with a cold and being so deliriously ill (when I say I'm deliriously ill, I really mean that I have a sore throat and a sniffle and I'm just pathetically whimpering and eating just ice cream and far too many throat sweets than is good for me. I'm kind of dazed. The lucozade hardly helps matters) I could hardly remember to post these. But then I did! Just now! I'm so glad. Anyway, onto the icons - hmmm. I think the Clara ones are quite boring and the Joan ones are odd. Somebody might like them and take them to live with their other little iconses (see, the cough sweets... they're not good for me).

The Beatles [25 Apr 2005|02:18pm]

parisianpierrot
It seems like forever since I made Beatles icons. Well, it is forever. About four months, which is shocking. Shocking! I remember the good old days when I made Beatles icons before I eat, slept, breaaaathed. Okay, I'm being far too melodramatic but it's a sunny day and I'm in a strangely good mood. Hurrah! Anyway, here we have twelve icons - seven group, one of two memebers and one each of each of the boys. I try to make each icon totally different (well, apart from the two that are identical in all but colour) so... yeah. Hope you like them!

Please remember to comment and credit! Also, none of these are customisable and please please please don't hotlink.

Olivia de Havilland [25 Apr 2005|12:27am]

parisianpierrot
Uhhhhm. Well, first off I should say that these icons are quite influenced by dtissagirl whose lovely work I've been looking at this evening. Also I've been watching a programme on kid's TV and had it on in the background when 3-7 were being made. I honestly feel like I was trying to make each icon more terrifying than the last. Oh, and did I mention that I've had far too much caffeine? Faith + kid's TV + caffeine + Photoshop = blinding icons with scary clashing colours and repeating images EVERYWHERE. PS they're not really as bad as I'm making them out to be, I'm trying to get you all interested (if anyone ever reads my crazy ramblings). Oh, and I don't know how many Olivia fans there are out there. I can name... three. So these may not be my most popular set evah. But please comment! Comments make me happy.

Elvis Presley & Gone With The Wind [20 Apr 2005|02:28am]

parisianpierrot
This post is brought to you by copious amounts of coffee, Audioscrobbler, Michael Bublé and a decided lack of sleep at the appropriate times. I'd also like to throw in insane anger (or maybe frustration) at my cat who's just wandering around yowling constantly. Right now as it goes. It's enough to make the song I'm listening to very appropriate.

Comment, credit, don't customise or hotlink and just generally be nice.

Lauren Bacall [17 Apr 2005|12:30pm]

parisianpierrot
More icons. Well, I do have to do something when I can't sleep. I was trying out some red. Yes, lol. I really do think Lauren Bacall is one of the most wonderful actresses. I saw her on Parkinson last week and she made me laugh so much. She's also seems really young & vivacious for her age. So I kind of had to make icons ;) Oh, and I keep meaning to pick up her book. To anyone who has read it - is it any good?
